46,000 Pa. Democrats Become Republicans Due To Trump

CBS reported that nearly 46,000 Pennsylvania Democrats have switched to Republicans since the beginning of the year.

According to Penn Live, some experts attribute the mass exodus to Donald Trump.

There’s even a title for the movement. It’s called “Ditch and Switch” and calls for lifelong Democrats to abandon the party, register Republican, and help ensure Trump’s place in the general election.

Professor of Public Affairs at Franklin and Marshall College, Dr. G. Terry Madonna, tells the paper he has a theory behind the switch.

“With the increase in support in exit polls for Trump among working class, blue-collar Democrats, it is my belief that these are people who fall into that genre,” said Madonna.

The numbers are similar in other states as well.

The paper says in Massachusetts, as many as 20,000 Democrats have gone from blue-to-red this year with Trump cited as a primary reason. And in Ohio, as many as 1,000 blue collar workers have promised to switch parties and vote for Trump.

Numbers show that some Republicans are also switching to the Democratic party, but nowhere near the numbers that are switching to Republican.

Records show that the party changes seen in the first two months of 2016 are twice those seen in all of 2013

    Not suprising that blue collar workers are lining up to support Trump.

    Whether its an America First trade policy, curtailing illegal immigration or a foreign policy that won’t send their kids to die in the Middle East it is quite a sharp contrast as to the establishment.

    Cruz, Rubio and Kasich have stated that they stand in solidarity with the Soros backed leftist agitators against your neighbor and family members who have gone to hear a simple campaign speech.

    Social media is on fire as Cruz, Rubio and Kasich supporters are disgusted by their opportunistic trashing of Trump and his supporters.

    Trump may reap a great harvest this Tuesday by the troikas betrayal and embrace of Soros.
